excellent food for a decent price. I stop by here every time I'm in town. From chimichangas to tacos and more, worth the stop.

Friendly and happy atmosphere. I was there on a Sat night and noticed young people around the bar where DJ starts playing at 9:30pm. From the outside you don't tell but this restaurant offers lots of seating area/rooms, including a patio. Food was excellent. I ordered chicken tostada salad and chicken, rice and beans were very tasty.

The Spanish wine was delicious and the food is fine but the portion was smaller than what we expected and compairing to other Mexican restaurants. The building is very unique and very Mexican.

I went here in December for lunch with my aunt. We got the calamari appetizer and we both got to go to salad with fish added to it. The calamari was interesting, like large pieces and a dip. The wine list was very very good. The atmosphere is super nice and I highly recommend this place.

The food is good, no doubt about it. But the service, especially if you are with kids and a foreigner, service is definitely disappointing. We had a 4 months old baby with us and the house placed us in outdoor area in a cold day and, despite of many available tables in ground floor, we had to carry the stroller... More

I hadn't noticed this restaurant walking around Del Mar because it is a little unassuming from the street. We googled Mexican restaurants in Del Mar and this was top of the list. Service was prompt and very friendly. Margaritas are made with all fresh ingredients and the food was very good. Good vibe all around!

Great little place to hang out with friends. Went downstairs to the bar to hang out with friends for a going away party. Very interesting vibes there.

I went by myself (on a business trip), and the staff were very willing to help describe dishes and beer offerings based on my preferences. Food was delicious, service was prompt and friendly, and of course, the patio is lovely.

En Fuego does several things very well: the shredded chicken enchiladas are excellent and very flavorful especially if you get the tomatillo sauce (and ask for extra!); the carnitas tacos are also very good and the various shaker margaritas are a must, especially the "skinny" margarita. Only at dinner do they serve chicken enchiladas with a guajillo sauce and it... More
